It’s a pleasure to welcome visitors through the door of our home here at Wentworth Woodhouse, a house that’s been a central part of the community for many generations through many different families.
We are enthused by the positive response of the general public & visitors to the recent house tours, & excited by what the future will hold.
Wentworth Woodhouse, the largest privately-owned house in Europe, is finally awaking from its slumber. Two houses of totally different architectural styles built by The First Marquess of Rockingham between 1725 & 1750, the west front of the house in the baroque style & the east front in the later palladian style.
After being inaccessible to most members of the general public for over 60 years this sleeping giant is finally opening up to the wide world.
